    Galactic Map Poster.

    I wonder what it looks like.

    Well, if it's anything like the Galactic Map Poster that came with the Star Wars Fact Files, it'll be pretty cool! I'm thinking of framing mine! :)

    I am looking forward to Elaine Cummingham's short story, The Crystal. Hopefully, it will give us some insight into what Dark Journey might be like.

    the title, Dark Journey, doesn't sound too promising for Miss Solo

    What's so bad about infinities? (BTW, I'm not defending them, I just don't know much about them)

    I just got a suscription, and the first issue I'm getting will be the one that ships in August. Which stinks, cause I really want to read the Jaina story, and I'll have to wait for it to hit newstands. :(

    Barns,

    Read what I said again - you left out a key word. Nothing is bad about Infinities. What is bad is putting the Infinities LOGO on things it doesn't need to go on, thereby removing those stories from happening in the "real" universe.

    Hey! You're right! Not a symbol in sight! :)

    Hope it isn't within the introduction page, though.

    Yes bubba I agree, or even worse on the spine of the book, :p. Someone should fire kyle hunter, for incorporating that symbol into the cover of the last issue, :p, and translating the meaning of infinnities they way he wanted too, :p, which means conflict exists in DH/WOTC staff about what infinnities means.

    Let's just hope there's a letter in the letter's to the editor collumn with people upset at what was done in 3, from the fans who don't like what they did, and a message to ignore the infinities label in the last issue except for that one comic.

    Here's more:

    Looks good. Especially Kaox Krul.

    Maybe this issue doesn't have Infinities cause of all the Lucasfilm-approved subjects concerning the Dark Side, so it won't be apocryphal cause LF said so.

    I think we have to wait for the prequels to finish up for that. Even if they arn't going to be in the movies, they are from that era and we don't want anymore conflicting stories than we already have.

    Just got Gamer #5 in the mail today. It's packed with excellent stuff from cover to cover. Even if you're not a Gamer, this mag is definitely worth getting.

    Oh, and Gamer #6 will have a "Tales of the Jedi" feature, full of characters from the TotJ comics.
